Istanbul: Anarchist high-school students detained for distributing handouts against vocational education

On the morning of November 6th, 2012 three anarchist high-school students were taken into police custody in front of İsmail Erez Industrial Vocational High School in Istanbul, while they were passing out fliers against vocational training. Cops beat the three comrades and forced them into patrol cars.

In previous months, other comrades and students from the same school were assaulted by the police because they organized a boycott of the school canteen by establishing their own solidarity tables: they brought food from home to share with friends and schoolmates, thus protesting against the school administration over price increases.
